Groups Dive Deeper at the NMA
Explore our oceans with a Group visit to the National Marine Aquarium. You’ll find out more about our sharks, understand our important conservation work and do your bit to help our Ocean. There are special group rates on entry and refreshments available too.
Why book a group ticket?
We welcome groups of 10 or more people (no upper limit) and they’re a great way to save money on large parties. Perfect for day visits, city stopovers and short breaks, the National Marine Aquarium is the ideal destination for a special day out. Visits can be tailored to suit all ages and interests and can occupy a group from one hour to a full day. If you’d like to make the day extra special, you can book one of our expert guides for an hour-and-a-half in-depth hosted tour.
Free entry for coach drivers and tour leaders
If your group is travelling to us by coach, there is a dedicated drop-off and pick-up point at the rear of the building. Overflow coach parking is available at the Plymouth Coach Station or by contacting City Bus. You can find all the information on coach parking in the city here > Coach Parking Information
We offer free entry for group organisers, tour escorts and blue badge guides. Free entry and catering vouchers for drivers too.
Add more to your visit
As well as the Nation’s Aquarium, just across the harbour is the Plymouth ‘s Historic Barbican. You can visit the famous Mayflower steps, take a tour of the world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery or head out to explore Plymouth Sound on a Boat Trip! You can really make a day of your trip to Plymouth and the National Marine Aquarium.
